It’s Not Too Late to Enroll for the 2019-2020 School Year!
3 Reasons to Earn Your High School Diploma + Why You Should Start at Success VLC This Fall
The summer is quickly coming to an end… and with the end of summer comes the start of a new school year. But that doesn’t have to mean a traditional classroom environment! Alternative high school programs give students an opportunity to learn at a pace that works for them, in a safe setting with a community of teachers and peers who are there to support them every step of the way.
If you’re not sure if completing your high school diploma is right for you, here are three reasons to finish earning your degree and why you should consider Success VLC as an alternative to a traditional classroom setting:
Increase Your Earning Potential
It’s no secret that high school graduates have more opportunities than non-graduates – that includes both job opportunities and earning potential. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, high school grads outearn their non-graduating counterparts by nearly $200 per week. That’s nearly $10,000 over the course of a year – or approximately $500,000 over the course of a lifetime.
That’s a significant amount of money that can be used to live your best life! That money can be used to provide for your family, take vacations, buy a home in a good neighborhood, and more. Earning a high school diploma opens doors and gives you opportunities. Which brings us to our next point…
Increase Your Employment Opportunities
Depending on your career goals, a high school diploma can be incredibly valuable. For example, many professions, from police officers to home health aides and paramedics, require at least a high school diploma (and perhaps some additional training). Even if your chosen profession doesn’t require a diploma, more education makes you more competitive on the job market and prepares you for success by teaching you new skills that you didn’t know before.
High school is an excellent time to learn all you can about subjects that interest you, hone your skills, and discover exactly what it is that you want to do going forward. You may be able to take on an apprenticeship or learn on the job while completing your education. Talk with your guidance counselor about your opportunities.
Achieve Your Goals
For many students, earning a high school diploma is a milestone moment. It sets a positive example for younger siblings or future generations. It shows that you value education and learning. Best of all, it gives you a boost of confidence as you take the next steps in life because it shows you that you CAN achieve what you set out to do. That confidence can take you far in life and help you remember that you have the skills to achieve what you set your mind to do.
